Alice Feeny’s debut novel, Sometimes I Lie is a book I really wanted to like. And I really tried to like it. Ultimately, however, I gave up. I usually don’t review books I don’t finish, but I won this one and figured I owed a review.
The story is about Amber. She’s in a coma after an accident. Her husband, Paul, a writer, is suspected by the police of causing the accident. Her sister, Claire, may or may not be having an affair with her husband. Her former boyfriend, Edward, may or may not be a creepy stalker who caused Amber to be in a coma.
Honestly? Amber lies. A lot. You never really know what’s real and what’s not and I got tired of trying to figure it out. Like all suspense novels today, this one jumps in time a lot and sometimes it’s is quite annoying.
So. This book wasn’t for me. But if you liked Gone Girl and Girl On A Train, you might like this one.
